The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: The last few years have seen significant increases in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be $55 for one bird, $60 for two birds, $75 for 3 or 4 birds, $100 for 5 or 6 birds, and $120 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

1.

Major Loft Reduction Mated pair of Houbens. Cock is a red check AU 2013 AA 43413 bred by Dennis Doyle of Texas, and hen a blue bar AU 2012 NANEZ 734, bred by Rick Nanez. They bred a 4th-place diploma winner in 2014, and the hen bred a multiple diploma winner in 2013. Both birds trace back to David Clausing’s “410". I only raised a handful of young from them in 2015 and just 2 in 2016. The two 2016 birds were sent out to futurities and one of them placed 20th in the MVS auction race. The 2015 birds were either sold or sent to futurities as well. Unfortunately the 2015 YB season was cancelled in Ohio and the 2015's never got a chance to prove themselves. Price: $300 for the pair

 

2. Major Loft Reduction Another mated pair consisting of almond cock and dark check “velvet” hen. Cock, no. AU 2013 AA 36942, is a late hatch and unflown. He is a grandson of “Heisenberg”, my best OB flyer over the last 10 years. Heisenberg is mostly Janssen. This cock has been considered my foundation for breeding almonds but is being replaced by a relative who has been flown out to 180 miles. Dam’s side is Meuleman, Janssen and VanHee. Hen is IF 2009 SLI 587, and is pure Huysken-VanRiel. She was purchased as a YB from Lighthouse Loft in New York, and she is the dam of 5th place MVS auction race, as well as many additional birds that were sent out to futurities. Price: $300 for the pair
3. May hatch ash red cock no. 6223. This pigeon carries the gene for dilute, since his mother is a yellow bar. His sire is down from "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner; and "Man-O-War's Soldier", an AU Elite Champion and 2-time Hall of Fame winner. Dam is unflown but both her parents were flown, her sire out to 255 mile, prior to both being pulled for the breeding loft. Dam is also down from "The Iceman" on both sides. Older siblings are on our current young bird team. Full pedigree. Price: $50
4. July hatch reduced hen no. 6142. This appears to be a hen, and I am about 95% sure it is. She is primarily Janssen and goes back to "Heisenberg", my best flyer over the past 12 years, including 5th at 200 miles as a YB and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th from 130 miles as an OB. 1st to loft on 1st four races of 2007, winning the 4th from 130 miles. 1st @ 160 in 2009; retired to stock in 2010. As of his retirement, he had been 1ST to loft in 10 of his 24 races. Full pedigree. Price: $150.
5. 2015 blue bar cock, no. 5870. This very nice, medium-sized cock was used as a breeder last year, but because of a need to downsize, as well as the fact that I saved several of his siblings for breeding, I now can afford to let him go. He was a late hatch and therefore is unflown, but his breeding makes him well worth trying in your own loft. His sire is a Gaby Van denAbeele that has raised two race winners on two different hens, as well as some very consistent flyers on a third hen. His dam is an "AU Elite Champion" bred and flown by Perfection Lofts of Kansas. As you can see from the photo, he is a solid, well-proportioned bird that will pass those qualities on to his offspring. Full pedigree. Price: $75
6. May 2016 hatch blue bar cock, full brother to lot no. 5 above. Being a May hatch, he could have been flown, but since I already had an older pair of siblings on the YB team I decided to hold him back in case I needed him for breeding. As it turns out I do not need him and he is now available to help you in your breeding loft. See above for additional details on his parents. Full pedigree. Price: $75
7. Barless brown qualmond hen no. 4951-14. This is a very prolific breeding hen and she is the mother of the barless blue qualmond cock listed above. She is primarily Janssen and is also down from "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner on both sides. She is one of what I consider my "Golden Thunderbird" family of barless that is based on "The Iceman". She also is a granddaughter of "9215" my foundation brown qualmond barless cock that is down from the long-distance browns of the late Bob Eaton of California. This is a very rare color, even more so because she comes from a family of flying homers and is not just a "color" bird. Full pedigree. Price: $250.
8. 2013 blue check hen, Janssen cross. This pigeon flew out to 300 miles as a young bird, and her mother flew 600 miles. Purchased from Steve Jenkins (Dixi-Buckeye) of VA after the 2013 YB season and has been a breeder since. This is a nice medium-size hen that handles very well. I seldom sell birds with race records but she becomes available as I try to make room for some very nice yearlings that I want to breed from. Price: $100
9. June 2016 hatch grizzle cock no. 6278 that was bred for stock. This cock is pure Long Distance Wegge and is out of a pair of the Dixie-Buckeye Wegges. Great looking and great handling pigeon, but we are having trouble finding a place for him among all our other breeders. We have on our current flying team an older brother that flew out to 235 miles this past YB season. Two other siblings were sent out to futurities. Price: $100.
10. May hatch blue bar cock no. 6227. Here is another long-distance Wegge out of a pair of birds purchased from Steve Jenkins of VA. This bird was held back for breeding but was not needed at this time. Pedigree consists of his parents only, BUT they both flew 600 miles. A full brother is on our current team and flew 100, 150, and 180 as a young bird. This might be the blood you want for some of those 300-mile YB futurities. Price: $75
